Suffering with dehydration, no amount of water seems to make me feel better. Awaiting blood test results but what can I do or take in the mean time?

Dehydration: Unfortunately, without knowing what's causing it, it's really hard to suggest effective treatment. Dehydration can be true when you are losing more than ingesting such as in cases of vomiting or diarrhea or relative when you are putting out large amount of urine in cases of diabetes mellitus or insipidus. Until you have your tests done, there's not much I can suggest without more history data. ...Read more

Like all life on planet humans are open systems which keep tearing down their structure & require intake of atoms/molecules from which to rebuild their structure. Intestinal lining cells replaced ~every 3 days. CaPO4 in bones ~every 6 years, ...Read more

Could there be a significant difference between blood test results that are just one month apart? If so, what are some possible causes of getting very different blood test results just one month apart

Yes: The lab test itself is important to know. If its your blood sugar many things can affect that. If it's your hemoglobin or blood level than if you lost blood or stopped losing blood it would change. Really need more information to give you an accurate response. ...Read more

I got my blood test results back. Very concerned that my Nucleated RBC was 0.2 and my Nucleated RBC Abs was high at 0.01. Everything I'm reading says no one other than newborns (and only for up to 5 days) should have any nucleated rbc's. Please help!

Any symptoms?: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Talk to the doctor who ordered the tests. Having said that, 0.2 is not meaningfully different from zero. The result would fall within the margin of error for the test. If you do not have any symptoms, do not be concerned. You may repeat the cell count next time you need a blood test for some other reason. ...Read more

Hard to say: If the alkaline phosphatase was high while other liver enzymes were normal, it can indicate many things - gallbladder or bone problems would be high on the list. Additional tests to break down the alk phos and additional tests of liver, gallbladder and bone function can help make a diagnosis. However, it is not uncommon to have mild-moderate elevations of alk phos and never find a cause. ...Read more

May be, but more: Important is your elevated fasting blood sugar. By definition if you repeat it and it again comes out 127, you are diabetic. Please consult your doctor as your earliest convenience and discuss all of your results. ...Read more
